I had growing pains really bad from playing sports and growing tall for a girl. what helped me was rubbing my legs and then I would fill up water in a styrofoam cup and freeze it then peel the styrofoam off around the top and ice my legs like that.
I would ask them if I needed to know anything else about their child, allergies, allergic, medicine, etc. so I could perform my job better as a babysitter.
